Third teen sought in school shooting

Police say they are looking for third teen in a shooting that led to the lockdown of a city high school.

Police say they are looking for third teen in a shooting that led to the lockdown of a city high school.

No one was seriously injured in the incident last Thursday but Central Technical High School — which has about 2,000 students — was locked down for about 1/2 hours.

Police allege that during a confrontation between two groups of three teens in a stairwell at the school, a handgun was pointed and discharged, with a round grazing the victim’s left temple area.

Two 17-year-olds were arrested and charged last Friday and police said yesterday that one of them now faces a total of 10 charges, including three counts of discharging a firearm to endanger life.

Police say they are still looking for a third suspect and the firearm used in the shooting at Central Tech.

The school was placed in lockdown as Emergency Task Force officers and Police Dog Services went through the school to ensure the suspects were not still in the building.
